Student Committee
Teacher of English (Former Employee), BattambangFebruary 8, 2015
Being away from the family and started to stay in a big family, I have learned more about life. Roles of student committee is really important, because if we mislead or misdirect, it is the big crisis. In here I have learned more and more about management skills. This is a big experience for me in life.

Dazed and confused
Business Development (Current Employee), Shreveport, LASeptember 27, 2014
Pros: good pay, good business model for customers
Cons: see above. horrendous management
Dazed and confused is how you will feel on any given day. Management makes wholesale changes (vs small tweaks) all the time. Constantly buying smaller companies. With every acquisition comes a new philosophy, plan, process change. Dizzying.

A swift growing small business
Rate Entry Coordinator (Current Employee), Shreveport, LAMarch 7, 2014
Pros: lenient with schedules as long as they are adhered to, good people, national company
Cons: shows favoritism, does not stick to their own deadlines
A typical day at work in my position is hectic and can be overwhelming. My responsibilities are the heartbeat of the company, any change or error in the information I enter affects the entire company. At this time, AFS is growing and expanding at a rate I personally think is dangerous. They are piling more work on their employees by adding more and more clients, but not offering any more compensation. – more... In fact, several of our benefits we currently receive will no long be offered before this year is up.

The company is generally lenient and understanding of people's personal life. If there is an emergency or a need for a day off for an appointment, they generally work well with their people. The employees work well with each other, and there are several really good managers, but the same cannot be said for all.

Once the company gets thru its transition period, I believe it will return to being a great career opportunity. – less

wonderful place to work
production clerk (Former Employee), fort rucker alFebruary 25, 2012
Pros: great benefits, regular pay raises, on the job training
Cons: have to have security clearance for most jobs
It's truly a wonderful place to work. The opportunity for advancement is unbelivable and so is the pay. The benefits are great. I really can't say one bad thing.
